Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

I suppose it's possible that the inverter is sending back unexpected responses that is causing the crash, but that seems unlikely. That was probably the case as the inverter had other cables plugged in (parallel comms, USB). So I unplugged all those, rebooted the inverter and tried again. Progress!...

Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

It's also entirely possible that you can't update anything at all. You may have early versions of the clones that later came with patched firmware 72.70c (lead acid flavour), but could not update firmware because they don't have a bootstrap loader. The flash tool crashes when I try to push new firm...

Small wind turbines

I am looking to erect a few wind turbines to supplement my off-grid solar system as we are getting somewhat enough wind here in Southland, New Zealand and very little sun in winter (there is enough sun when the sky is clear but it is often blocked by very dark overcast). This should save lots of mon...

Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

you could try 72.70c or really you may as well go to 73.00e. Thank you! Will give it a shot soon and report back if it fixes the AC input problem when in parallel. The other "bug" with MPPT charging that I mentioned turned out to be my omission: I split the PV input in parallel between the two (par...

Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

Hello everybody! After a whole day of googling how to geek with my inverters I am pretty much excited to find this forum! So, I happened to have bought a couple of clones with parallel kits installed (no branding at all, though sold as "Hybrid Inverter"): https://i.imgur.com/oaxGnjv.jpg They do have...
